The Allman brothers sitting in on lovelight!! Nice show besides that.

More exemplary '69; nothing really *surprising* if you're familiar with the basic material, but that doesn't mean it isn't played to the hilt; it is.

I think the most pleasant variation on the norm is the odd intro to Casey Jones, sans the familiar riff - you won't recognize the tune at first. While everyone loves the line they eventually laid down to signal the tune's beginning, to hear the genesis here is pretty neat.

Lovelight is the BIG highlight of this show; a few patches needed here and there....this is another one of those sources just waiting for a day when it can be complete, but probably won't be. If Duane and Gregg are playing on this one, I couldn't really tell...

Anyone know if the Allman Brothers' set was taped?

An excellent show with an undeservedly low profile. The DS-> St Stephen -> Eleven is top drawer. Tom Constanten demonstrates why he was invited to join the band.

great sounding set. .one of the better soundboards from summer 69...as a note, the Eleven track actually starts with the High Green Chilly Winds interlude...

What a time to have enjoyed a day in the Park! A piece of ATL music history. Being able to hold a civil, free, and amazing experience such as this in Piedmont Park is beyond our imagining these days. Charlie Miller should never have to pay for a drink of anything the rest of his life! Four stars on the performance, five stars for the upgrade!
